Folk Heritage Museum Restaurant
For a taste of authentic Bhutanese cuisine, book a table at the Folk Heritage Museum Restaurant. Opened to enlighten visitors about Bhutan’s rich food culture, the restaurant sources the best seasonal, organic ingredients in the country and prepares them using the traditional cooking methods of bygone Bhutan. The colorful, authentic setting complements the food perfectly – guests sit on cushions around a low table and eat from handmade wooden bowls, as Bhutanese custom dictates. The extensive menu, which boasts 60 vegetarian dishes and over 100 meat dishes, features such Bhutanese fare as khuli, a pancake made from buckwheat, kekti kewa (spiced baby potatoes) and ja sha maroo, a dish of minced chicken. Perfect washed down with a glass of ara, a local rice wine.
